We make products that impress, time after time.

Design is in Our DNA.

Since 1980, Designcraft has thrived on the satisfaction that comes from solving the creative and technical challenges inherent to product development – challenges that only stunning visual models and prototypes can answer. We’ve overcome these challenges by drawing on the diverse backgrounds of our team members, harnessing ingenuity, perseverance, and craftsmanship. We’ve never stopped challenging ourselves to raise the bar.

In 2021, we raised that bar in a big way through an acquisition which doubled our milling and turning services. Located in Addison, Illinois, this second location was once known as Christensen Precision Products. We’ve rethought its operational standards to bring them in line with Designcraft’s reputation for quality and creativity while still preserving what made Christensen great. The result is Designcraft Manufacturing, a facility uniquely suited to the needs of low-volume production buyers. Prototyping and model making work continues at our original location in Lake Zurich, Illinois, now known as Designcraft Prototypes.

Whether you’re creating the first version of a product or ready to start manufacturing, Designcraft is proud to contribute to your success. Our culture here runs on a simple idea: Nothing is impossible. This isn’t just our job. This is our passion.
